COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

Pours a slightly hazy darker golden amber color with off-white head. Pine, herbal notes, floral notes, and light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a nice stickiness for a DIPA.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours amber with white froth. Quite boozy, hoppy, plenty of pine. Doesn’t hide the booze like some other strong IPAs.

Calisky (2343) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2015
Couleur orangée, très légère mousse beige. Nez fort houblonné fruité, résine et pin, note de levures, réminiscence de fruits rouges. Gout houblonné amer, malté, caramel blond, fruits jaunes, herbes, notes menthe, baton de réglisse, légères baies avec longue amertume de pin et reglisse en fin de bouche. Very good stuff Brooklyn!

This may be the highest rate I will ever give this style. I had this really snarky idea for a rate before I tried it, but damn if it ain’t half bad. I could never have more then one, but that one was quite enjoyable. Grassy nose hops are a little piney with a perfect citrus balance. Alcohol very well hidden.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at Farmhouse in Burlington. Copper pour with a good sized white fluffy head. Aroma is incredibly dank, with heavy resin notes of pine sap and dirt mixing with a dark citrus character and a touch of caramel malt-- really nice aroma. Flavor drops off a bit, with less complexity; mostly citrus and evergreen, but not quite as sticky and bold as the nose. Palate holds good hop bitterness through to the finish. Good beer, but not in the upper echelons of the style.

750ml bottle (draught sample). Pours a deep straw, with a thin, white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma, apricot, spruce, grapefruit peel, resin, malt, caramel, passion fruit. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Very hoppy taste, malt, caramel, spruce, grapefruit peel, apricot, resin, caramel, yeast, quite herbal finish. (2012-06-13)

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Interesting hop nose, some citrus notes, there’s something a little different though, can’t place it. Pours blonde with a thick white head. The flavor reminds me of a pale ale or even and english ale mixed with some belgian yeast flavors, hoppy, citrus notes with sweet malts and some spicy belgian characteristics. good.

Pours clear amber with low white head Fully freshly hopped aromas citrusy fruits. Taste is loaded with fresh hoppyness. I wonder how this will taste after 2 months in a bottle? However, very very good from Brooklyn! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
